Paul Cleave is an internationally bestselling author who is currently dividing his time between his home city of Christchurch, New Zealand, where all of his novels are set, and London, where none of his novels are set. His six novels have so far been translated into a dozen languages and nearly 20 territories.  Movie rights have been sold to his first book, The Cleaner, and will be a European production. The Cleaner has sold almost half a million copies in France and Germany alone, and is one of the biggest selling novels ever to come out of New Zealand. He has won the Saint-Maur book festival's crime novel of the year in France, has been shortlisted for the Ned Kelly award, and has won the Ngaio Marsh award for NZ crime fiction. His new novel, Joe Victim, comes out later in 2013, and brings back Joe Middleton, the infamous serial killer from The Cleaner. Paul is currently working on book 8. When he's not writing, he spends his time swearing on a golf course, getting tennis lessons, or adding to his list of countries where he's thrown his Frisbee (25 so far...).
